U.N. Security Council to Allow Limited Humanitarian Aid to Syria’s Idlib Province

HeadlineJul 13, 2020

The United Nations Security Council voted Saturday to open a single border crossing to allow humanitarian aid deliveries from Turkey into Idlib province, a rebel-held region of northwestern Syria. The weekend agreement broke a week-long stalemate, after Russia and China vetoed plans to allow humanitarian aid shipments through two border crossing points. Idlib recently recorded its first case of COVID-19, raising fears for more than a million internally displaced Syrians living in sprawling camps.
